Portrait of a child in black and white

The Fine Art of Family Portraiture

My aim is to create a series of character defining portraits, which your family will cherish and your friends admire.

I photograph exclusively in black and white, craft fine prints by hand with platinum and palladium, and make stunning hardwood picture frames to museum standard.

The time and effort devoted to realising each portrait as a beautiful object, is a reflection of the lasting importance I believe they will have for your family.

Family Photographer London | Bio

London based portrait photographer Ciaran Lee, specialises in making distinctive black and white photographs of children and families, as well as the creation of hand-made platinum and palladium prints. Working away from the confines of a studio environment, Ciaran uses your home, local park or place of personal significance as the backdrop for evocative and memorable portraits. Combining dramatic vision with consummate printmaking and framing skills, he produces finished pieces of artwork which freeze forever the defining characteristics of your family.

Relying on just a small selection of equipment, and working with whatever the natural light and location have to offer, Ciaran thrives on the simplicities that aid the strongest possible subject/photographer connection. He has an interest in fine printmaking that is borderline obsessive, and lovingly finishes each custom picture frame by hand. When not photographing families, he makes images of the landscape which are released in limited editions, and like his portraits, printed meticulously by hand.
